The Disciplined Trader: Developing Winning Attitudes
"Emotion kills successful trading". People, who trade stock or currencies, know how emotion kills a successful trade. But how control our emotions? Read this Mark's book to improve your ability as a trader.
We highly recommend this book for beginners.
Trading In The Zone
The Intelligent Investor
This book really works on your psychology, helping you to invest in a businesslike way and tune out the distracting mood swings of "Mr. Market." This serene attitude has elevated Graham to Zen master status among serious investors; Warren Buffett, his most famous protege, calls this "the best book about investing ever written."
Analysis of Financial Statements
Leopold A. Bernstein, John J. Wild
A professional-grade guide to interpreting financial statements, but written in a clear style that makes it accessible to non-accountants. Discussions and examples help make things relevant by putting you in the roles of different people - from the management consultant looking for ways to make the company more profitable, to the stock investor deciding whether you want it in your portfolio.
A Random Walk Down Wall Street
Burton G. Malkiel
The author introduces a number of investment approaches, including Fundamental Analysis and Modern Portfolio Theory, describes them carefully... and then uses statistical data to tear them to shreds. The overall focus is on warning you away from strategies that don't work. He also offers some positive results (chiefly that stocks indicated as undervalued by traditional ratios tend to outperform the market) and some useful advice. If a little constructive negativity doesn't depress you, this is a helpful survey.
Guide to Economic Indicators
This is meant to be a reference, but it's so well written that you can read it as a general guide: you won't be frustrated by jargon or choppy, dictionary-like writing. Entries give you a sense of what economists really have to do to get a handle on where the economy is going, explaining where the data comes from, how it's measured, and what it all means. This is a good place to learn a lot about the economy in a hurry.
